Private Homes, Kona Bay Estates estate description

Transcend paradise with our absolute oceanfront 3 story home located only blocks to Kailua-Kona town and within a guarded gate community of luxury estates. Your private ocean setting overlooks rich lava, white sands, crashing waves and Hawaii's famous romantic sunsets.  

Ke’ala Ho’omaika’i  (The Blessed Path) was artisan designed to offer you 180 degrees of ocean front shoreline, while relaxing in 7,000+ square feet of elegant living space. When you arrive and open your mahogany entry gates you will walk into a tropical meditation garden. A gentile cascading waterfall draws you along the meandering path and over the pond to the grand entrance. Even before entering your home the stunning view of the Pacific Ocean beyond the disappearing walls takes your breath away. Throughout your stay the beautiful Pacific Ocean will be the backdrop for all of your memories. 

As you walk through the home you will be surrounded by commissioned art work done by several local artists. The entryway inlayed Monstera Leaves are by artist Alex Gupta and will lead you to the open great room / gathering area and beyond to the covered lanai, infinity pool and ocean. The gathering area offers a baby grand piano and comfortable seating for all.

Adjacent to the great room is  your chef designed kitchen with a generous bar sink island for dining or serving. Included is a Wolf six burner stove/plus griddle and two ovens; the kitchen also offers a built in drawer microwave, two dishwashers, two full size sub-zero degrees refrigerator and freezer with ice-maker. Hand carved from granite and travertine tile is an original tropical floral design on the wall above the range. A more extensive list of amenities is listed below. 

The main home is comprised of 3 master bedrooms and four baths. You have an option to rent (in addition to the main house) our attached Ohana Suite (Hawaiian for Family Suite) we have named Hale Honu (Turtle House).

Your main three bedrooms are accessed by the grand spiral staircase or private elevator. The second floor hosts two bedroom en suites: 

Aloha Suite is oceanfront with a private furnished covered lanai and a full size hot tub overlooking the ocean. The King Size Tempurpedic bed faces the azure blue waves. Aloha Suite has another Gupta work of art: inlayed  glass etched leaves under the bathtub and 'growing' up the shower walls. An impressive piece of art that has been displayed in both national and international publications. 

From the stair case there is a covered outdoor pathway with magnificent views of Mount Hualalai leading to Dolphin Suite.

Dolphin Suite has a king size bed in a private tropical retreat setting. Your lounging lanai has a shoreline view looking north for what seems like forever. Ensuite shower. It also includes a flat screen TV with DVD player, iPod dock, ceiling fan, desk and office supplies.

On the third floor we proudly present: 
Lanihau (Heavenly Hibiscus) offering an authentic 1800s converted to a king size Chinese Wedding Bed (originally owned by Bart Ward of Batman and Robin fame) looking out to the ocean on three sides, you are literally surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Pacific Ocean!  The suite has two lanais: The oceanfront lanai has a full size backgammon table with breathtaking views up and down the coast as if perched in a crows nest. The mauka (mountain) view lanai is the ideal location to enjoy that first sip of Kona coffee while sharing in the view of the sun rising above the mountains each morning. There is also a twin size day bed for lounging, flat screen TV, exercise bike, desk, printer, office supplies, ceiling fan, small refrigerator, sink and library. This suite is an open air suite with no solid door for entry off of the stair case... similar to a loft but more private (people can not see in from below).

If you need a fourth Master Suite we are proud to offer
Hale Honu (Turtle House) which is located off of the entry way and to the right of the great room, a very private suite with it's own second entrance from the meditation garden. This Oceanfront Suite has a private covered lani and tropical garden, complete with large bamboo swing to while away the hours. Your king size bed faces directly to the ocean. There is a granite petite kitchenette with a small refrigerator and microwave. This suite has an artfully designed wheel chair accessible shower, flat screen TV, ipod dock, walk in closet and ceiling fan. 
This suite is rented separately for $200 per night for your additional ohana (family/close friends). If you do not rent it we lock it up and do not rent it to anyone else.

Sit on any one of the four ocean front lanais and be entertained by the spinner dolphins, whales and turtles. These are just some of the many visitors that on any given day may find their way to the ocean just steps away from your vacation paradise.

The grand lanai off of the great room has a large covered area gently leading to the open sunning area and ocean front infinity swimming pool. The ocean is just steps beyond. Your pool is divided into two pools to offer both heated and non-heated accommodations. The area is large enough for an event with the intimacy of a family gathering.

Ke’ala Ho’omaika’i  is the most northern home in this gated community offering the only completely unobstructed northern coastline view. All coastline in Hawaii is given respect as sacred ground, but the area directly in front of your home is considered to be the most revered. Ka'ma'aina (local community) honor their ancestors at this location. Christenings, Proposals, and Wedding Ceremonies take place on the shoreline adjacent to your home. This spot is also considered one of the best shore diving locations in the world.

Just a few steps away is the community park that offers Olympic size pool, indoor sports center, tennis courts, pickle ball, horseshoes, soccer and baseball fields, a community garden walking track and an outdoor roller rink.
 
You are just a short stroll to a sandy waveless beach. 

Just a two minute drive is the International Market Place and the Kona Brewery. The International Market Place offers local gifts, artwork and cuisine. Kona Brewery is the home of the world renown island brews.   
 
The village of Kailua-Kona is a half mile away where the Pier is the center of the towns activities. The cruise ships, snorkeling and dinner cruises, the historic home of King Kamehameha, and the Queen's Palace are all in this locale.

Other highlights of the home:

Five spacious bathrooms (many including rain shower heads) all of elegant travertine and granite.
